up to 50,000 people at the same time. the obama administration also says the site is stable more than 90% of the time. however, according to providers, healthercare.gov is far from perfect. the "new york times" reporting insurance companies are still not receiving all the information about the individuals who signed up for coverage through the exchanges creating a logistical nightmare for insurers. former adviser to president obama insists obama care will be viewed as a success even if it doesn't happen until after the president is out of office. >> this program was designed to be implemented by the states and in most of the states that's running their exchanges it's going quite well. you talk about medicaid extension. it's a fact and it may take 2017 when this president leaves office you'll see almost every state in this country running their own exchanges and expanding medicaid. let's fast forward to the state of the union, months afterwards. economy continuing to strengthen. i think the president's numbers will recover and people's confidence will recover. >> then, of course, chuck
with the young voters and their growing apparent disapproval of the bristol-mye obama administration and the president himself. do you think, those that a larger part of their disenchantment with this particular president has to do with the fact when they get out of college they won't be able to afford a cell phone because there will be no job for them, because the economic landscape is so bleak for them? >> sure. i totally think that. that's very accurate. you know the thing is one time where the white house was doing well politically this past year was during the government shutdown. it's a weird way to say you're doing well when the entire government stops. i think young voters and i don't speak for young voters obviously, happen to be the youngest on this panel but young voters have been through a lot in the past four years with respect to the economy and job prospects and student debt which is a huge issue and they look at the landscape and say who has anything to offer -- what are people offering me. they look at obama and say you haven't done a great job. but then they look at
john cornyn accused the obama administration of lying on a number of issues including the benghazi raid and obama care. >> i think the current administration has taken lying to a new level. the willingness to mislead people or provide them just demonstrably false information and expect to move on. we've seen that most recently in the health care debate over if you like what you have you can keep it. something we can go back to 2010 and demonstrate that the department of health and human services knew was false. >> jim, he's running for re-election next year. >> is that an excuse. >> a lot of democrats running in the south and i think you guys have the story on this, a lot of democratic senators running in the south next year are hearing that over and over again and will have a receptive audience. what cornyn said a lot of swing voters in the south believe. >> if i'm in the south and a democrat i'm worried about the ramifications of obama care. that's what they are picking up in their andy poling. you see these democrats who felt safe a month ago who feel they can lose. we were talking e

[ laughter ] so i have to consistently push on every cabinet secretary on every single agency how can we do things better and we can do things better. >> john meacham what is your take on his perspective on his own administration. >> i think it's realistic. president kennedy said defeat is an orphan and victory has a thousand fathers. that's true whether it's a government agency or private institu
